Published by: Microsoft Game Studios

Developed by: 343 Industries

Genre: Shooter

Release Date:
US: Nov 06, 2012

The biggest video game trade show in the country, E3, bombards Los Angeles with gaming love starting on June 5th, 2012. With the biggest names in gaming gathering in one spot, it takes a lot of effort to keep track of it all. Every day, we'll cover a different game we expect (or know) will flex its digital muscles in LA.

To celebrate Craig and Smokey’s favorite day of the week, we’re talking about what will arguably be the biggest game of the year: Halo 4. We haven’t heard from Master Chief since 2007, leaving us plenty of time to ponder the possibilities for the the future of everyone’s favorite Spartan. Why did Cortana wake him up? What gives with that giant iris that’s tractor-beaming his ship into its maw? And why was he missing his codpiece in the debut trailer, only to have it appear later? All questions needing answers!

  • Developer: 343 Industries
  • Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios
  • Release Date: November 6, 2012
  • Genre: Cyber-warrior battle fest
Under the guiding hands of 343 Industries, Halo 4 is the first game in the series-proper not made by Bungie. With shades of reboot and origin story shaping the narative, it promises a deep dive into John-117’s world -- territory Bungie historically left to the supporting fiction, comics and novelizations until now.

The first entry in the brand new Reclaimer Trilogy, a trifecta of titles 343 says will take 10 years to complete, Halo 4 will feature a direct connection between the single-player story and multiplayer modes for the first time via an in-game mechanic -- or giant spaceship, specifically -- called Infinity. Aboard this UNSC ship of ships, the galaxies finest warriors will continue the endless red versus blue, using wit, charm, firearms, sticky grenades, and an all-new persistent progression system that’s similar  to the perks in Call of Duty.

We should learn the first Halo 4 story details at E3, along with a full introduction to the new antagonist race (other than the leaks from Todd McFarlane’s Halo toys, of course). We know we’ll see the return of the Covenant, but we’ll likely find out what role they’ll play, and if any other enemies like the Flood or the Brutes will return. E3 should also provide our first hands-on time with multiplayer, and likely will include the introduction of new maps, a detailing of the new aforementioned persistent upgrades, and more details on Spartan Ops -- a new cooperative mode that 343 will update every week with new content and objectives.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Amazon Echo Plus (Second-Gen) Review

The second-gen Amazon Echo Plus is shorter, louder and better-looking than ever. What's not to like? Here's our review.
Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Nest Thermostat E Review

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest
Should I Buy The Nest Thermostat E?
The Nest E is a great smart thermostat that’s comfortably among the most stylish and easy to use on the market, but as it stands in the UK, there’s not much reason to opt for the E over the existing 3rd gen Nest, which has some extra functionality for a similar price.It's a different story in the US though - a bigger price gap makes the E an easy recommendation if you're in the States.
